People get tired for many reasons. I don't see how ONE reason is to blame for tiredness the world over.

Tiredness is affected by many things among which are,

Sleep,
Physical exercise,
Diet,
Water consumption,
Additives in diet,
Blood sugar,
Illness,
Depression,
Hormones,
Air quality,
Allergies,
Your quality of bed,
Stress,
Disrupted sleep,
Snoring meaning lack of oxygen while asleep,
Medication,
Oral contraceptives,
Having a TV in your bedroom (many have that nowadays)

And much more.

It is extremely unlikely that there is a major conspiracy to make people tired or that a natural global event is causing it. The question would then have to be asked why isn't EVERYONE tired?

There are indeed major sleep problems in society but they are of the more mundane variety folks!

Wow, way to incite conspiracy with something as generalized as people being "tired".



We're all doomed.

This tired disease omg...

Personally, I've been rather drained lately. I never sleep much. Even when I feel tired, I tend to lie awake in silence for hours (my mind's too active and I can't turn off the inner chit-chat). But the last week or so, I've really felt exhausted.

Maybe that's part of it, I personally do very little constructive stuff on the computer. Just message boards (ATS and another). Maybe I need to try to learn new things, but that just seems too easy, it's really not that hard to "learn something every day" as the old adage goes.

Do any of the people that are still getting an education feel the same way? Is it possible that rather than a lack of physical excercise our "condition" is caused by a lack of mental "excercise?"

People have survived Morgellons even though it has not been studied to any large degree by medical experts. I dare anyone waiting for me to drop dead to hold their breath.

Is your walk all at one time or is it like at work? If you do not exersise, Meaning that you put in no extra physical activity besides your normal daily work routine then yes you are going to get fatiuged over time. You can ask any physical theropy expert and they will tell you that.

You should go for a ten minute fast walk every morning for starters and trust me you will feel great when you walk into work every morning because it warms up your whole body and gets you ready for the day.

I have been through three back operations and one for my shoulder so I know all about physical theropy and what it takes to keep your back strong and your body in shape, Now hopefully the darn surgen did this last operation that I had two weeks ago right unlike the last time ( different doc )and everything will stay good. I also started working last monday after one week of rest from my surgery if that gives any of you lazy people insperation to get off your tushes lol.

Exersise always makes you feel better and after tons of research they have also found out that stretching before exersise is dangerous because stretching relaxes the muscle when what you want to do is warm the muscle up before exersising it then stretch after your work out. I pulled countless muscles working out because of the old school thinking years and years ago of stretching first.

I know a guy who is in his sixtys and he walks for ten minutes, Does 100 push-ups, Crunches and reverse crunches and then does 100 squats with no weight and he is strong as hell but you would never know it. He is my last physical theropy specialist from the hospital and he rapped off the push ups for me one day just to show me how week I was after surgery lol. I did fifty at the time thinking that was good enough for being hurt so long lol. I got showed up by an old skinny guy.

Pardon the spelling as my work pc is crap and has no spell check. Fight what ever is causeing everyone to be tired and exersise. Your body will thank you.

Well I'm glad you aren't feeling it Masisoar. Looks like alot of other folks are.

What I was highlighting, and hoping to provoke discussion on, is people who have 7-12 hours sleep waking up and feeling tired, like they hardly slept, and why that might be.

Now its true that not everyone is experiencing this, but as can be seen in the thread, a significant number of people are - not only that but a large number of people are feeling out of sync with whats going on around them.

Now it may be "global depression". I can buy that. But if it is then other stuff comes into play such as things like zeitgeist. We often refer to animals as having some kind of "sixth sense" when a disaster is about to happen - did it ever occur to you that humans may do the same thing? Did you look at the link I posted above about the Global Consciousness Project?

Its easy to dimiss this as a "whacko" thing, and suggest that people all need to "get a life" or "do some exercise", but that if they HAVE a life and DO exercise, and still a huge number of people still feel that way? Where do you go from there?

Feeling drained (say 5% of the energy level I should have)

- Sleeping enough hours without interruption

- Eating well (healthy, biological, veggies etc. + extra vitamins en minerals; esp. magnesium). Desserts with all kinds of berries etc.

- Stopped drinking coffee 1.5 years ago (cold turkey, yay~)

- Reduced sugar intake dramatically over the last 5 years.

- Skipping artificial sweeteners completely. Won't buy anything with that stuff in it.

- Little to no stress at work


But still feeling like my knees are going to collapse underneath me any time now..

I graduated about a year ago, but I learn new things all the time. (I love science and read science journals and magazines a LOT) So the mental sluggishness for me doesnt seem to be due to sloth, or lack of current learning. I personally dont even feel "dumber" as someone else said, just mentally tired, like when you have studied too long and nothing wants to stick or make sense anymore.

I also exercise physically, and usually when I do some exercise I feel tired immediately afterward, but then feel pretty charged up the rest of the day. (After a brief recovery from the initial tired feeling.)

My stress levels are higher than normal right now, (I am moving) but I have moved before, and been under stress before, and this feels different to me.

This tiredness goes right through the stress, (which usually makes me overly energetic to just get whatever is stressing me over with quickly) and I have to force myself to do the things that I need to do. And I have been needing to rest periodically, when normally I work like a machine til the job is done.

Maybe it is just the weather, or the stress, but to me, and this is subjective, and only an opinion, it feels like something else. I dont know what, but something other than just my own normal reactions to stress and the weather. Which is why the thread caught my eye. Maybe it is just all of us being collectively worn down psychologically and physically by the high levels of stress and fear the media machine has been pumping out for the last several years. Maybe we just collectively reached our saturation point.

Maybe instead of changing our physical activities, we need to give ourselves a break from the doom and gloom machine that is the media today. I certainly dont know, but those are some thoughts.

I walk in the morning right after I wake. I do my exercise all at once. It is part of my meditative routine. I recite my Rosary while I walk. For me, this is the best form of exercise.

Tin foil hat to block out the bad stuff lol. I do not dismiss this as a wako thing because people I know, Even my girlfriend who is never tired during the day is completely exhausted and she too complains that she is thinking way to much about everything. I know, Lucky me for putting up with the bad moods. My mood is good, I am loaded with Pain pills

Very good point Neformore. It had not occurred to me until you said that, but that phenomenon could very well be the case. It feels to me as if it is something "other" than me. I know what I feel like when I am tired, getting sick, not had enough sleep, etc. This feeling is similar but different in that it feels like more than me. Bigger than me. (Not a good description I know.)

Hello!

Didn´t read everything, but I think many of you are from U.S.A.
I´m from Europe and believe me...
Everybody here is also feeling tired. The most don´t know it in their mind, but they are...

I don´t know why...

My question is how many people who are tired are actually happy in the situation they are in. Is work going well, how about life on the home front. My guess is the people that are miserable in their lives or struggling to make ends meet are the ones who feel more tired now then ever before. With all the bad news out there, war, the economy, gas prices it is hard not to feed depressed. Times are tough and by the posts on this board most people are seem to think there is no light at the end of the tunnel. If you believe 10% of the post and predictions on this site that alone would give anyone a very good reason to be depressed. And what has depression have to do with being tired. Well it is the #1 Symptom of depression. I for one am not tired at all and things seem to be going well in my life. I highly doubt there is anything more sinister behind it besides just some sort of depression and the fact you are getting older.

It was me that made the dumber comment, but maybe that's not the right term. It's more like what you're describing, like I have to read something multiple times before the content actually sinks in. I read it but it doesn't make it to the brain, if that makes sense.

Good, Glad to hear that. That reminds me I need to call and find out when my new treadmill will be delivered. It has been way to stormy around here lately. Saturday night we got four inches of rain in a few hours, Flash flood warnings and all. Wacky weather lately here in Florida.

So you know how other people feel? Come off it. How do you know how other people feel if they are not telling you. That is quite an assumption. I am wide awake. I only sleep 6 hours a day, and am not tired at all.

There you go,tracey ace, perhaps you could invent a hat with a solar powered, human energizer on it? No doubt the income you would realize during these days of Nuveau Tech sales would get you some of your old energy back?

I agree on this.

I notice something when i stopped going out to fast food restaurants. I switched to tea instead of soda. I felt better. I drink a lot more water and vitamins.... I still crave some fast food from time to time but we go out once every couple of months, instead of everyday.

I work at home so no stress from others. I would get some mental tension just from co workers and customers. Made me a ball of anger, that tired me out.

I also think you need to stress your body out by exercise, a good sweat makes your body release toxins, so thats good. The key is variety so you dont get bored of working out. One day run, next day play basketball and so forth.

I also notice i feel better when i don't spend as much time on the computer..well the internet. My work is on the computer, so every hour i get up and do some stretching...I limit my internet forum browsing while i eat lunch. Then i am off. In fact my lunch is over so i have to go.

but being tired can be a lot of things, reading a lot of doom stuff is mentally tiresome in itself.
I hope everyone gets better. I do believe in some conspiracies (UFOs) but i don't agree on the tiresome plague. I am also a poor family man so i dont contribute my happiness to that. I have a lot to stress about but you know i could be dead and not see my wonderful family anymore, so i am grateful for what i have.
